The cycling holidays Exodus provide start at a “Leisurely” level and can go up to a “Tough” level with “Moderate” and “Challenging” options in between depending on your capability.
Self guided cycling holidays with Exodus are perfect for those who like to cycle independently. The majority of self guided cycling holidays have a “leisurely” activity level. You get the added security of having your accommodation provided and detailed maps and route notes, as well as having your bags transported for you to each hotel. All you need to carry is what you need for the day’s ride.

For those who prefer their cycling holidays a little bit more challenging, the Road category of Exodus cycling holidays offers this. Itineraries are based at least 70% on tarmac, however some routes will also include occasional sections on un-surfaced tracks. The routes are designed to avoid overly busy roads, but you should feel comfortable riding in occasional traffic, and depending on the activity level (Road cycling holidays often range of from “Leisurely” to “Challenging”), the terrain can range from flat to mountainous. A good example of these types of cycling holidays is Tuscany: Cycle Siena & Chianti. During this cycling holiday you will ride through diverse areas of Tuscany, such as the hills of Chianti and the beautiful areas of Montepulciano. Riding north, you will enter ‘Le Crete’, a wonderfully scenic region that’s home to some of Tuscany’s best towns and villages.
